I hope you've enjoyed your long summer days. As we begin this new school year, please remember that the primary goal for being here is your learning. My job is merely to teach, but your job is to learn. I will do what I can to help you with that, but learning is ultimately an active process on your part (i.e. I can't "learn" for you). Success in math depends on lots of regular practice and not falling behind. Please have fun during your school year, but please stay focused. There is room for both.
